I am now working in a chemistry lab trying to use principle of developmental robotics and machine learning in general for the exploration of chemical spaces.
I have been trying to explain why random or grid search experiments are not the best things to do for some time now, but it does not seem to be fully understood yet. I have been explaining the problem by referring to injective and surjective functions and drawing a lot of example but we are not yet there
Do you know of any good website or papers with visualisation that explain the problem of exploration of an unknown function/system?
I know this is all natural to us and we always refer to it as obvious in papers but somehow I could no find a simple visually made paper to explain this to non computer scientists.
More concretely is there any paper from the group explaining the figure below in simple terms?
